I like boobs. I’m a straight woman, but really, who doesn’t appreciate them? Robots. Reptiles. Sauron. That’s about it. And I’m not even positive about Sauron. He might have, at some point, before he was all disembodied. Breasts are awesome. As feminist writer Gail Collins said in her New York Times piece, “Everybody likes breasts — infants, adults, women, men. Really, it’s America’s most popular body part.” But sometimes it seems like we only get to talk about how awesome certain kinds of boobs are. The ones that are bold, perfectly round, Sports Illustrated-style, belonging to Christina Hendricks, full, plush, generous, prominent, and just generally big.

Youn once tried to bring a patient’s purple (about to turn black) nipples back to life by placing leeches on them. “The leech drains the old blood, causing it to turn from unhealthy purple back to healthy pink. We place leeches intermittently until the body part grows new blood vessels to do the leeches’ work,” Youn recalled. The image of this entire scenario is terrifying. [CNN]

Let’s talk about nipples — specifically celebrity nipples freeing themselves from the confines of celebrity wardrobes. It happens all time! Usually we ogle and move on but sometimes unfortunate combinations of wardrobe, setting, and nipple make us want to wash our eyes out with bleach. When Nancy Grace’s nip made a guest appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” we saw it … but we wish we hadn’t. “When we were doing our hopscotch portion of our dance, there was a little bit of movement but it did not rise to a wardrobe malfunction,” she told Entertainment Weekly. Sorry, Nancy, there was full nip exposure. The truth hurts. But it’s better than denial. Click through to see some celeb nip slips that made us feel uncomfie. [NY Post] Keep reading »
